365 Poems: January 9th, 2014

Back to School

Ah, the feeling is familiar again.

Your heart beats in the thunderous rhythm of

a hundred footsteps down a hundred halls.

The bells mimic the sounds of morning birds

pulling you out of your winter sleep.

You begin to memorize the numbers again.

You memorize the dates,

the vocab,

the music notes,

the conjugating verbs.

And once again you see the smiles of your friends,

and their tales and vacation woes.

Sometimes it’s good to be back.
